Laptop Monitor Problem

This is on behalf of a friend so I apologise for the lack of specification on the computer itself

Basically the problem is the screen is split into four, the whole desktop is visible but then there is a blank space and then a repeat of the desktop again, at the bottom there is also a blank area and a repeat of the top of the desktop.

It is like that for all situations, even when the laptop is loading and shutting down.

The laptop is running Vista and I've checked to see if dual screen feature has been enabled and it isn't. I've never come across a problem like this so any suggestions would be very helpful.
